Hi Teresa,

My name is Marnie Kaufman and I recently came across your blog. I laughed out loud a number of times reading your post and was impressed by your coordination of ACC internet resources.

As you may know, I too was diagnosed with ACC in June 2004. As a result, my husband, Jeff, and I started the Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation (www.accrf.org) exclusively to coordinate and stimulate research for ACC. As you have stated in your posts, there are already a number of organizations providing great patient education and support.

I just wanted to let you know about our research efforts and tell you that I am more than happy talk to you further if you are interested.

Warmly,
Marnie Kaufman
Director, ACCRF

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog, Marnie! I will be sure to add your foundation url to my list of links on the right side of the blog (and include it in the next post about the links, for those that can't see it). You and your husband are doing wonderful work. Here's to more researchers signing up for your funding!

Hey Teri,

This is the first time I happened across your blog or understood what was going on with you.

You are so strong and always, always, always have the most amazing attitude.

I'm very happy to hear about Elisabeth's trip! How wonderful!

I'm thinking of you with much love. Give my love to your two-legged family and to that Lucky-D for me!

Kate!!! Thank you for leaving a comment! You were just on my mind (yep, we were talking about getting ready for orientation, and you are the organizational guru that I follow). I will let everyone know your good wishes (especially Lucky!). Please email me anytime. You know where I live! -Teri
